deficit. we still have a deficit in the budget. this year coming $123 million, and the second year in the budget covering 2014/15 has $256 million deficit. we are not out of woods. but these numbers are better than $500 million and $700 million budget deficits that we used to have a few years ago. our city is doing better. we are concerned about how to fulfill that deficit. but we are also concerned about what is happening to seniors, what is happening to youth. what is happening to families. our open space. our small businesses. our environment. we are all concerned about that as well. of course i must say about our housing authority as well. so we are taking on a lot of responsibility and because we are and because we are very busy doing the work we are. sometimes we need your input to steer us in the right direction for what things you think are important. so we are open to that. and we want to hear from you tonight. enough speeches. let's get on with it. may i have a couple words from supervisor avalos and farrell. >> thank you. thank you mayor lee, and yes, i get to make a speech too

budget deficit out there, we add to that, the deficit, 470 million, does not include deficit of the central subway, the projected deficit of 400 million dollars of the time the construction is done. somewhere we have to give something up. one of the things we are proposing is to eliminate the extension to north beach for the time being. it is not necessary. you have no plans to put something in there. you'll save 70 million dollars and have heard a lot of pleas appear about how that money could be better used. something has to be given up in extending the subway to that area -- it's a beautiful idea long-term, i love it but we have to have priorities here. educating our children, healthcare, the budget officer said that we have a sequestration, 8 million dollars this year, ends in september. i have been told to stop here but we do have to put constraints on how we spend to save the city. thank you.

the deficit for our country, what is happening to make progress for the american people? do you ever wonder about that when they tune in and see debate on bills that are going no place? do you -- they think, well, here it is just another day in the majority-controlled, republican-controlled congress? another day without a budget agreement. another day of ignoring the top priorities of the american people by the republican majority. our constituents have made it clear time and time again, we must work together to create jobs, to strengthen the middle class and to grow the economy. our -- yet once again republicans refuse to listen. instead we are debating legislation that endangers women's health and that disrespects the judgment that the american women and their doctors on how to make judgments about women's health. this bill would deny care to women in the most desperate circumstance. sad and desperate circumstances. it is yet another republican attempt to endanger women. it is disrespectful to women. it is unsafe for families and it is unconstitutional. at the start of the con

didn't know how we would pay for the bill. i hoped it would be deficit neutral. boy, did my hopes come true. it's not deficit neutral. according to the congressional budget office we reduced the deficit in the first ten years by 190 billion and over a 20-year period $700 billion. so the reason i didn't want to agree to 5,000 agents without somebody showing me how we would pay for it, we're borrowing enough money from our grandchildren and great grandchildren to run the government. we don't need to do any more borrowing unless we absolutely have to. the good news is the bill that we have written will create economic growth in the country at a time when we need economic growth. it will allow employers access to labor they don't have today so they won't be tempted to cheat in the future. this bill helps the economy. don't take my word for it, take cbo's word for it. if you had some more money to spend in this bill, how would you want to spend it? let me tell you what senator graham would like to do. he would like to hire 20,000 border patrol agents to let everybody in the country kno

unable to provide a stimulus? it has been running trillion dollar deficits for four years in a row, the biggest in the history of the galaxy, more than twice as high as the bush deficit. congress has been unbelievably loose with money. add on to that the fed buying of bonds and pushing down interest rates. we have had the biggest double stimulus in american history and we are growing at 2.5%. that is not a healthy situation. >> the reason the recession ended and why you see the gradual return to economic stability, the fed was easing monetary policy to do this. what should it have done? >> and fiscal policy. >> suppose there had been a stimulus? suppose the fed had not intervened? where would we be now? >> weeping. >> let it be historical noted, after a financial crisis comparable to what this country went through in 2008-2009, there has been a 20% loss of prosperity. that has not happened in our country. we are an island of prosperity in a sea that is not nearly as prosperous. why? in spite of been bernanke? i don't think so. i'm sure others can make that case. but the fact is, be

department is the issue of our structural deficit and salaries. historically we have operated with a budget that is less than our actual staffing levels in the department. that's happened for a number of historical reasons, but with working with the mayor's office we have been able to get to the point where we're able to correct that in the budget for the coming two years that's an investment to bring our budgeted levels up to our current levels of existing staffing. it's about a little over $50 million per year that is funded partially through internal reductions, partially through increased revenues and partially through general fund support in our budget, so that won't solve all of our problems going forward by any means, but what it does mean we will not walking into day one of the new fiscal year be starting off with a deficit in the budget so that is a significant positive for the financial stability and management of the department but also for the general fund. other changes, some of which you heard about. we have a significant appropriation in each of the two years for the b
